Description
Release date: Late 2014/Early 2015
Overview
Dungeon Buster is a free action adventure game being built as a homage to The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. The game will be free and the source files will be included.

The story is set in Jorokiim; a fantastical land teeming with all the right elements that make for a fun adventure, up to and including maniac shopkeepers. Buster is a once-famous knight of the Royal Guard of Jorokiim, fallen from fame as per the slow march of time. Evil reared it’s head long ago, shooting Buster to fame as the lone knight who stood up to it and clawed back the sanity of the world. Well, not really. There was another guy, a wizard named Lars Séance. He paid the ultimate price, giving his life to perform an archaic spell that would seal away the evil forever, or about 20 years as it turns out. Buster made it out alive, and quietly forgot to mention Lars' sacrifice thus gaining all of the glory.But evil has awoken once more, and has conveniently inhabited the many abandoned dungeons scattered throughout Jorokiim. Rising to face the challenge is what you’d expect of Buster, but really he was forced to do it...

Features
  • An expansive, feature rich overworld with many dungeons and secret areas just waiting to be discovered.
  • Potion crafting; explore the overworld and gather ingredients in order to create some tasty power-ups and nasty poisons!
  • Beautiful pixel art lovingly hand crafted to give Dungeon Buster's environment and characters a nostalgic atmosphere.
  • Wonderfully nostalgic, haunting, and wistful hybrid 8-bit music by M1mk.
  • Full game source access (we're making it with Construct 2).

Outlook
We are a two man team from Northern Ireland and Germany respectively, who both love old-school action adventure games. With the tools available to us now we are able to create our very own adventure and want to share it with the users of Steam. Dungeon Buster is our baby, and from the outset we have aimed to release the game for free and with the source files included. Our reasons for doing so are that we want everyone to learn from our experiences in creating Dungeon Buster, and so that others can be inspired to create their own adventures.

Please consider voting YES for Dungeon Buster!

Thanks, Wrangler (Mitch) & Mimk (Maurice).
